Well, this is interesting.  Cruz has gone from consistently running 4-6% to suddenly taking the lead at 25% in the nation’s most populous state.

California doesn’t vote until June, so the primary may be over by then, but either way a primary candidate taking CA and TX would be hard to beat.

It’s possible Cruz is peaking too soon, but if this momentum continues broadly into the next couple months this may be a short GOP nomination process.
